    I need to create a Campus Map. This map would show the current energy consumption of each building on the campus. Depending on high or low consumption each building would either be green (low) yellow (mid) or red (high).

    What would be the best languages or the best way to go about this project?

    Thank you to anyone who can help me out!

    As per the view and the flow of the market Java is one of the best language for programming , and the reason for treating it the best the just it's a independent language which doesn't depend on any other language like other :)

    Java is definitely a good option! Like what I've quoted from the above post,it is indeed independent!

    Ignore above two posts. Where would the data for energy consumption come from - a feed? Manual input?

    Java is the widely used programming language. One characteristic of Java is portability, which means that computer programs written in the Java language must run similarly on any hardware or operating-system platform.

    Enough with the “java“
    This wouldnt be that hard to create with just a little script, and css.
    Youve only got three outputs, low, med and high, which can be targetted with css classes.
    A simple script which takes the raw data, and when the variable gets to a particular value it triggers a change in the class. Just need to duplicate that for each building.

    It depends what you're creating.
    Most websites are developed using a mix of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, and MySQL.
    (Otherwise known as AJAX).

    As a .NET developer, C#.NET is the best programming for me. Combination of C#.NET and ASP.NET technologies you can build stable, re-usable and more secured applications.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the feedback!

    The data will be coming from a database storing data from the campus' metering system.

    The project is to create a home page with an interactive map that shows each building on the campus as red, yellow or green depending on the usage amount. Idealy each building will be clickable to show the numbers.

    I've been looking into developing this interface using Adobe Flash Catalyst/Builder and designing using Illustrator.

    I imagine I can incorperate php to access the database and display the data aswell as actionscript?

    I am not well versed in any programming languages. I am a front end web designer/developer knowledgable in html/css/javascript/actionscript/php and fairly new to projects like this.

    Thanks for any other help you can provide! :)

    thats all you'll need to know to get this working.

    just think outside of the square for how you normally use these languages, and it'll pop out at you.

    C# are many ways, so once you know one it's not too hard to learn the other. I would start with dot net because there are lots of good free tools, especially Eclipse, for Java development, and it is available on all major platforms. To get the full benefits of .Net development you need to shell out for Visual Studio and you're stuck on Windows.
